What is Vedic Astrology ?
« on: February 07, 2018, 04:12:11 AM »
Vedic astrology is a myth. The Vedas and the Upanishads did not deal with the systems, calculation, rules and theories of astrology or about the foretelling of human destiny on the basis of stars and planets. On the other hand, Vedas and the Upanishads condemned its study. Astrology did not originate in India. It came into being in Babylon and came to India via other middle-east countries. The idea of the Babylonians was developed further by the Greeks and the modified versions came to India just after the invasion of Alexander in 327/326 BC. That is why its other name is “Samudrik Vidya” or a subject which came from beyond the seas. The Vedic sages rejected the subject stating that it takes a man to the darkest regions of ignorance and is not useful to human life and human society. A few kings of that time became interested in the subject and invited their court-priests to study and develop it. Thus it developed and patronized by the powerful kings became popular among the common people also.
